Good to see you posting these pics early in the morning. Bear hunters get their morning fix looking at these great reminders of what is to come. Thanks Craig

Always enjoy seeing pics of the story behind the story, especially from the outfitter's perspective.

So much goes into a guided bear hunt we don't see in advance of our arrival. Good outfitters do it for the love! Safe season! C

Looks a little soupy in a few spots. We've had way too much rain in Central Wisconsin and more on the way. Lots of flooding and wet fields. It's pushing my food plot work out until June. Not looking forward to the massive hatch of mosquitoes that is coming. Good luck this spring and be safe!

Well was a good week again weather was nice. Devon tagged a nice black and Paul missed a beautiful blond. They decided to leave early for they are driving back to South Carolina. I felt bad that he didnt get to tag his first bear. He told me it's not about getting a bear it's about the hospitality and the chance to get one. This is why my wife and I do this for the chance to meet new and great people thanks again guys. Steve ,Jeremy , Tanya, Ben, Devon, Paul, Becky and Alex have a great summer.
